One of the ongoing features of the Herald has been the Police Blotter. This provides a summary of the more interesting bits of police activity from the past week, and it is always published on Sundays. In the summer of '09, I was in charge of this. It involved a lot of combing through the police log, looking up criminal codes, and putting the information into easy-to-understand sentences.
I'm not going to post all of these, but I will post one chosen at random to provide an idea of the kind of work I was doing as well as the kinds of crimes Benicians were committing that week. Eggs were thrown, people complained about an annual bike festival...it was quite a week.
"Apparently, it was some kind of scam."
